An in-person sequel to the online conference QUACKS.

QUACKS II will feature a minicourse taught by Daniel Tubbenhauer (University of Sydney), entitled From representations of monoids to representations of monoidal categories. This minicourse will be accessible to grad students (assuming a standard graduate algebra sequence), and will be accompanied by exercise sessions. Roughly, the minicourse will discuss representations of monoids, based algebras, and monoidal additive categories, with applications to the representation theory of the Hecke category.
